3. Do you accept insurance? How do I know if my insurance will cover your services?
I am a provider for Premera and First Choice insurance plans and can also bill as an "out of network" provider on most plans. If you are not certain about your coverage, contact your insurance provider and clarify your benefits with them before our first appointment.
I suggest you also check as to the amount of your annual deductible and whether this has been met. It is always better to know before you are billed what to expect in terms of your responsibility for payment.
4. How do I know if you are the right therapist for me?
The therapeutic relationship is a unique partnership.
It is important that you as a client feel comfortable with the therapist you choose. With this in mind, I offer an initial phone consultation at no charge.
At this meeting you are invited to ask questions
and get a feel for what therapy is like and whether we are a good fit.
5. What are your fees?
My fee per 50 minute session is $120 for Individuals and $140 for Couples.
